  1. 33BUICK4ME, I have been scratchin' my head and wonderin' WHY anyone would want a really bad 1933 Buick hood? a little humor there - very little. Seriously, good luck with your searching. Terry Wiegand OUT IN DOO DAH
  2. I'm with Brian on the 20w50. I have run Havoline 20w50 in everything I've ever owned since I was a kid. My Dad never used anything but that. When I have the engine rebuilt in the '16 and it goes back together with modern rings and tighter cylinder wall clearances, I am thinking that I will run 10w40 in it then. Engine tolerances were a whole lot looser almost 100 years ago and in my humble opinion rings that were almost a half inch wide was why these old engines tended to smoke. Again, just my opinions here. Terry Wiegand Out in Rainy Doo Dah
  3. Brian, before you slip the assembled cages back into the cylinder block, could you group them together for a look-see photo of those beautiful new springs. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  4. I have this 1918 and newer models plated Dash Light Cover for sale. This is a very thin gauge brass metal cover. It has a hair-line crack in the top side that was there before the plating. A person has to look very hard to find it, but, none the less it is there and I want any interested person to know that it is there. It has been stripped and triple process plated (copper, nickel, and decorative chrome). I am asking $50.00 plus the shipping. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas

  6. I will go out on that proverbial limb and say that the pushrod cover on my 1920 K-46 is the correct color and that color is called Argent. This is the same color that Chevrolet used on their Rallye Wheels on Chevelles and Corvettes. The spark plug covers on '20's were Black. The pushrod cover runs the entire length of the cylinder block. On my 1922 Model 48 the pushrod cover is the same OD Green as the cylinder block. The spark plug cover is Black baked enamel as is the 1920 cover. I cannot begin to tell you why the pushrod cover on the 1920 is not engine block color. I can tell you that the car is as original as you will ever see with less than 5,000 doumented miles on it since being built. I realize that these two cars are a couple years earlier than what you are asking about, but, I think Buick carried through with the pushrod covers being the color of the cylinder blocks and the spark plug covers being Black for quite a few years. Maybe Larry DiBarry will chime in here since he owns a 1925 Standard and a 1925 Master. Hope this has been a little bit of help by laying the groundwork leading up to the 1925 models.

  7. want to buy

    Hugh, since these are cast aluminum, they can be polished out rather easily. The only thing with this is that once you get them polished out you will have to keep them waxed regularly to keep the oxidation from setting in. Doesn't the guys down in Australia reproduce these? It seems like I remember seeing these from them in polished stainless. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  8. Hey Lamar, where have you got Dale (over in Indy) hiding at? We're needing an update on the Buick Bug that he is supposed to be workin' on. I couldn't get much information out of Ben at Chickasha because he just didn't know much either. That was quite the visit you had from Dandy Dave. It looks like the liquid refreshment flowed freely and a mighty fine time was had by all. By the way, will we all see you and Miss Rita in Milwaukee come July? Terry Wiegand Out in Doo Dah
  9. Jeff, that movie was 'Ace Eli and Roger of the Skies'. The majority of that movie was filmed over around Mount Hope, Kansas and was done around late 1970 I believe. I remember your Grandad talking about that. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  10. Just curious - what makes you think it is from a truck? Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas

  12. This is just my thinking here, but, it appears to me that the push rods were purposely designed to be the weak link in the valve train. If, for whatever reason, a valve would hang up, the push rod would bend and keep from doing serious damage to the roller lifters or the rocker posts and/or arms. Several bent push rods was how I found out that I had some stuck valves in the '16's engine when I got the car from my Dad. It had only been setting for about 15 years when I put the crank on it to turn it over. Oh the fun since that time. Terry Wiegand Doo Dah America
  13. Gary, I sent you a response to your PM. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  14. And I personally want to nominate Larry Schramm for the 'Epitome of a Buick Man' award. Why you ask? Well, he has hauled all four fenders off our 1916 D-45 to Port Huron, Michigan to have them straightened out before going under paint. These fenders have been down to Mexico to be straightened up (but the guys down there did not want to do them the way I wanted them done - and that's another story all by itself) so Larry picked them up at Chickasha and took them back home with him to have them straightened up for us. For those who might not know this, Larry has the market cornered on Buick trucks. He has the largest collection of Buick trucks in the whole wide world. He should have the Buick Man award just for this fact alone, but, no, he is helping another long time Buick enthusiast get his Buick back on the road. Larry Schramm is the banner carrier for Buick Trucks. Having Fun - Making Friends - Driving Buicks. Look that up in your Funk and Wagnalls and you will see Larry's picture.

  15. Well, Dang, look who's in the Pre-War business now! Somehow we just knew it wouldn't take long to get you hooked on a straight eight. I guess you know you just hosed off these guys that tell everyone that Buick didn't build anything worth a hoot before 1960 - you know, the 1960's, 1970's, and 1980's crowd. The '54's are nice, but, wait till Dale hears about this! Welcome to Buick Heaven Brother! Terry Wiegand Out Doo Dah Way
